OUR MISSION

“To honor and uphold the legacy of St. Vincent de Paul and St. Louise de Marillac by serving persons of the poor in humility, simplicity and charity with Christ as our source and model.”

The shop supports over 60 501C3 organizations through in-kind donations and significant financial contributions right here in your Lake Travis community and beyond! Did you know that shopping and donating at the Lake Travis Thrift Shop is helping your neighbor?

OUR VISION

We will accomplish this mission by imitating Him in all our endeavors and the members will seek sanctification for themselves and others as we provide for the spiritual and corporal welfare of the poor and needy of the community.

Our dedicated members and volunteers provide over 39,000 hours of service each year to support our mission.

OUR HISTORY

In April of 1991, Monsignor Richard McCabe from Emmaus Parish asked a group of ladies led by Anita Fisher to establish a Ladies of Charity Lake Travis Association. Within this association, he suggested a Thrift Shop be formed to support a new charity. This charity he felt compassion for, The Lake Travis Crisis Ministry, has the mission to serve those in need in the Lakeway area. Funding had been difficult for the charity and the proceeds from the new thrift shop were to support their ever-growing needs.

The Lake Travis Thrift Shop continued to grow through the support of the Lakeway community and additional volunteers. The Shop changed locations until it made its final home in 2020 to 440 Medical Parkway in Lakeway. This growth has allowed Ladies of Charity Lake Travis to support many more additional charities such as Community First, St. Louise House and Catholic Charities. We have also partnered with the Rotary Club of Lakeway/Lake Travis to provide educational scholarships to Lake Travis High School Seniors. Click here to see a complete list of the over 50 charities we have served.
